Neil Lennon distances himself from Leicester job

Celtic manager Neil Lennon has cooled rumours speculating him with the vacancy at his old club Leicester as manager

Leicester are believed to have a long list of managers they have targeted to replace Swede Sven Goran Eriksson, following his departure earlier this month, whilst Lennon is reported to be one of Leicester’s main interests.

Despite enjoying a successful four years at Leicester in his playing career, Lennon has denied the rumours and has claimed that he is happy at Parkhead and is happy to stay even though he is flattered to be linked with a move to the Foxes.

Lennon revealed, “I am not aware of it (the speculation),” said Lennon. “I am very flattered, but I have a hell of a job here.

“There is an obvious connection because I played there. It is a great club with a bit of a clout behind it, but I want to stay here.”

Celtic were marginally pipped to the SPL title last season by Rangers, and Lennon also suffered from a series of threats from Scottish fans.
Therefore the chance to move to England with his family could become an appealing factor for him.

Huddersfield Town manager Lee Clark is believed to be the favourite to land the job, however former Chelsea and Portsmouth manager Avram Grant is another shock candidate and Mark Hughes a very serious option.
